Corporate Matching Funds

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor Matching Gift Programs that match eligible charitable contributions made by their employees.  GMEF received over $3,800 in matching gifts for the 2014-2015 school year.  The impact of your gift to the Garrison Mill Educational Foundation may be doubled or possibly tripled!

Does my company match gifts?

We have a partial list of corporations below that are known to have matching gift programs.  Even if your employer is not listed, they may have a program in place.  Your Human Resources Department or HR Portal will be able to provide current information about your employers programs.

How do I get my gift matched?

Each corporation has unique program details and processes.  Please check with your Human Resource Department for specific actions you should take.  Most corporate procedures are very simple:

1.  Request a Matching Gift Form from your company

2.  Send it to Garrison Mill Education Foundation (completed and signed) along with your donation, and you’re done!

3.  Garrison Mill Education Foundation will complete the form and return it to your employer.

4. Your employer issues a matching gift contribution to Garrison Mill Educational Foundation.


Completed forms may be sent to the school:

Garrison Mill Educational Foundation, 4111 Wesley Chapel Road, Marietta, GA 30062
Employer Identification Number (EIN) Tax ID Number: 27-1580499
